8. What is special about
majoring in Accounting or Business Management at Marymount Manhattan
For starters, permit us to
quote the famous real estate mantra: Location, Location, Location!!!
The College is located in one of the world's greatest cities, an
international center of commerce, finance, advertising, and businesses,
large and small. It is a fabulous place to study economics and business
because you are right in the middle of it. For example, our dorm is
just blocks from Fifth Avenue and East 57th Street, the heart of
midtown. New York City and the surrounding area are home to the New
York Stock Exchange, the Federal Reserve Bank, many of the country's
top financial services and pharmaceutical companies, a thriving
import-export market, the fashion industry, and the city is the
national headquarters of many businesses.
That is what is outside of Marymount Manhattan College. Inside, you
will be exposed to all areas of business, regardless of your
concentration. You will gain basic knowledge in accounting, finance,
management and marketing. Because Marymount Manhattan College is a
liberal arts college, you will learn critical thinking, writing and
presentation skills in a broad range of liberal arts courses. All
students take courses in human nature and values, natural sciences,
social sciences, language and literature, and the arts. Your classes
will be small and your instructors will be experts and professionals in
the field. There are no graduate students teaching classes. You will be
learning from your professors who will know your name.
